Changes at Times Internet Ltd: Avinash Mudaliar, one of the founding members and Head of Gaana.com, Times Internet’s foray into the online music streaming business, has put in his papers, Mudaliar confirmed to us. We heard rumors about him joining a label or joining a startup in Bangalore, but he says he has a few options and is currently evaluating them. Mudaliar joined Times Internet almost five years ago as VP (Creative) and Content Head in 2008, from Web18. Prior to this, he was the Head of Indiatimes.com, and worked across projects at TIL. At Web18, he was a part of the core product team, and the Editor in Chief of In.com. He has been involved with the music side of the business: he has Radio Mirchi, and was the COO and business Head of Rave Magazine.

Taking over from Mudaliar is Pawan Agarwal, who joins the company as VP and Business Head of Gaana.com. Agarwal was previously the co-founder and COO at Sunstone Business School, prior to which he was heading Lime Labs India, and was involved in setting up Lime Exchange in India, as well as the domain registrar LimeDomains. He was a part of the initial technology team at Globallogic.

Miten Sampat has joined TimesCity as its General Manager and Business Head. Sampat was previously the VP (Product Strategy) for Quova (now Neustar IP Intelligence), an analytics firm which indentified the geographical location of individuals on the basis of their IP address. Sampat joined prior to Times Internet’s acquisition of restaurant recommendation site Gawbl. Before Quova, Sampat was the Chief Architect & CTO at Feeva where he developed technology to enable ISP’s to provide metadata for targeted online advertising. Prior to Feeva, Miten co-founded & led the SeeVT project at Virginia Tech.

Swapnil Shrivastav has also joined Times Internet as VP (ad tech). He was the founder of Seeknet, was acquired by a leading ad network in the Bay Area in 2005 while his second venture, Vriti, raised over 7.5 MM USD from Intel and Jafco.
